Story
Tagline
Not quite as grouchy as Lou Reed.
Introduction
I started 'blogging' about music back in 1998 and then Drowned in Sound followed in October 2000. I've since released records and managed artists and continue to write "critical assessments" every now and then. 
Bragging rights
In. Sound. Drowned.
